Festival Review: Lollapalooza Berlin - Tempelhof Airport, Germany (12.09.15 & 13.09.15)

Lollapalooza branched out into Europe for the first time over the weekend, taking Berlin's Tempelhof Airport by storm.

Having attended Lollapalooza in Chicago last year, I felt like I was going into this one at least a little prepared, but Berlin's festival game was another beast in itself.
